Portfolio of writing work

My portfolio of work includes magazine articles and interviews, ebooks, and corporate white papers.

I am currently the editor for the Australian monthly B2B magazine Process Technology (Westwick-Farrow Media Pty Ltd), and its associated website processonline.com.au. As editor of this well-respected magazine for the processing and manufacturing industries in Australia and New Zealand, I manage the delivery of all editorial content, much of which is contributed by industry experts and journalists, and some of which I write myself. I also occasionally write for other magazines published by Westwick-Farrow.
